My research group has a long-standing interest in spectrin and spectrin-like proteins, such as α-actinin. The major aim is to understand the structural and functional roles of these proteins.

My research group has a long-standing interest in spectrin and spectrin-like proteins. The major aim is to understand the structural and functional roles of these proteins.
Presently our efforts are focused on two different areas: to determine the structure and dynamics of a spectrin repeat by NMR and to characterise α-actinin from Entamoeba and S pombe.
